The ICS

Lesson 36-8th Grade Science

The ICS stands for Incident Command System. It is a part of SAR, which is Search and Rescue. It is a simple way of showing how SAR is organized and run.

ICS is important to SAR because it organizes the teams and the entire SAR organization. It allows the teams to work safely and orderly. It also helps manage the aftermath of a critical event. It ensures the safety of everyone present.

The ICS is built around 5 management activities:

COMMAND- Sets priorities and objectives and is responsible for overall command of the incident.

OPERATIONS- Has responsibility for all tactical operations necessary to carry out the plan.

PLANNING- Responsible for the collection, evaluation, and dissemination of information concerning incident development as well as the status of all available resources.

LOGISTICS- Responsible for providing the necessary support (facilities, services, and materials) to meet incident needs.

FINANCE- Responsible for monitoring and documenting all costs. Provides the necessary financial support related to the incident.

The American War for Independence

Lesson 25-8th grade History

The war for America’s independence began in 1775, and ended in 1783. The war marked the separation of the 13 colonies. This war was fought against the British and is one of the most significant events in American history.

The war started with British troops going to get a cannon and supplies from the town of Concord. However, the colonists had been given news that the British were coming and they assembled a militia. The British, not suspecting anything, went on to the town. They were greeted with a full militia of colonists. No one knows who fired the first shot, but that was the start of the first battle in the American War for independence. You actually couldn’t call it a battle, because it didn’t last that long, but it was important because it showed the colonists what they could do. The British were surprised, but they continued down to the town of Lexington.

Lexington had prepared a militia, but they didn’t plan to be hostile. As the British came up the hill, they fired at the militia, thus starting another battle. The colonists lost again, but the British suffered many casualties.

The colonists began digging trenches in the hills, so that they could surprise the British and get the upper hand in battle. The battle went well for both sides. On the British’s side, they gained the hills. On the colonists side, they now knew that they were just as strong as the British.

A Bad Day and How I Handled It

Lesson 20-8th grade English

When I play with my siblings, we sometimes get a bit rough. Ok, that’s an exaggeration. When we play, we play really rough. The accident that happened to me was with my brother.

We were playing on the floor, wrestling, when my brother rolled over my hand and I heard a crack. My thumb really hurt, and it was swollen. I didn’t think that I had broken it at first, but it didn’t stop hurting after a couple hours. I tried to bear the pain, but in the end, my mom took me to get an x-ray.

The doctors said that it wasn’t broken so we went home. It was still swollen the next day, and it hurt. They called us back the next day and said that it actually was a small fracture, which means that the bone cracked.

We went back to the hospital and waited for about 1 hour or longer. The doctor came in and gave me another x-ray, then went out again. We waited another 20 minutes. The doctor finally came in and gave my hand an inspection, saying that it was a clean fracture and that I didn’t need a cast, only a brace. This happened at the beginning of my 7th grade year, so I wasn’t allowed to do Athletics for 3 weeks.

The worst part of this whole thing was probably the waiting. My hand is all healed up and working perfectly. I had an overall great year in Athletics. That is how I handled one of the worst days in my life.

My Homeschool!

Lesson 19-8th grade English

My home-school is very independent. I do Ron Paul Curriculum, or RPC. The curriculum is all online. I like the independence of the curriculum, and it has been going well for me so far.

RPC makes you have a blog and a YT channel, and both those things I never had up until now. RPC makes it so you can be more grown up and feel independent. Parents don’t have to nag at you because you sign a contract that says you cannot get on gmail, or any other social media.

I love doing RPC because I have gotten to meet a lot of other students just like me who are the same age as me. I get to have a YT channel and blog, and those are very successful.

What I learned this Week in Science

Lesson 25-8th Science

Here’s the link to my main channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcaiMG8mrvGF3K_mNJV8UpQ?view_as=subscriber

Please subscribe, it is greatly appreciated!

First, an important announcement to all my subscribers:

I will not be posting until I get my iPad, which will be in about a week or 2 weeks. I can’t draw on my laptop. So sorry about that, I am as eager as you are!

Thanks for your patience!

Now on to the assignment!

What I am writing about today is building a community. Building a community is bring all your subscribers together and making them dedicated fans of your channel.

There are 7 elements of building a community.

Creation Story

Creed

Icons

Rituals

Pagans

Sacred Words

The Leader

These all represent something in the YouTube platform. The Rituals, for example, are like specific things you and some other channels might do. Or Icons, which are your thumbnails or Profile picture.

Pagans are the kind of people who don’t like what you are doing on YouTube, and as much as you might love this idea, there are always going to be those kind of people out in the world. You can’t please everyone, but you can please those who like your content.

I hope this was helpful for other people struggling to make their YT channel grow.

Again, pls check out my channel and sub, thank you!

A time That I helped a Friend

Lesson 18- 8th Grade English

One time I helped out a friend was in 6th grade. Now, I’m not gonna lie, 6th grade was the Best year of my life in public school. My friend’s name is Jannessa. She is very short, shorter than most kids in the school, so she was bullied a little bit. One day, the kids were being mean to her because she talked a lot too, so after class, I went and told the principal. After that, she was still bullied, but not as much. It makes me feel good that I stopped a little bit of the meanness.

(If that’s the word)

The best Birthday Present

Lesson 17-8th grade English

The best birthday present I’ve ever had is a phone. I don’t have it anymore, but I got it for my 12 birthday. This was a pretty big accomplishment for my parents because they hate the fact kids have phones. What I loved about my phone are Youtube, Pinterest, Gacha Life, Merge dogs, and Whatsapp. I had a lot fun with my phone, and I am glad I got to experience what it was like to have a phone. I felt like I fit in better, because everyone else has a phone.

My Favorite color

Lesson 16-8th grade English

My favorite color is aqua blue. I like it because it reminds me of the ocean. My name Marin, means of the sea. So I don’t know if that’s some type of connection, but I just thought it was cool. I like the color blue in general, but aqua is my favorite shade. I also like the way it kinda goes with everything. But that’s my opinion. I just love the turquoise type feel the color has.
